Sit is one of the most basic and the easiest commands that you could teach to a Border Collie. You can start training this trick even while they are young puppies. All it takes is a treat and couple of minutes of practice.
There are a lot of methods on teaching this trick, but from my experience the one I’m going to show you here has never failed me. The puppy learns the trick really quick and you don’t have to even touch or force the dog into the sitting position.
Like I said before, all you need is couple of treats and a few minutes to practice this trick. It would also help if you found a location that’s quiet and free from distractions. You want your Border Collies attention completely focused on the treat that will be dangling in front of him.
By never forcing the dogs butt down, the Border Collie will learn the trick much quicker. It’s also a lot easier to teach a command when the dog can do all the steps on his own without any physical intervention.
So let us know in the comments how long it took you to teach your Border Collie to sit on command using these methods.
